Phil writes, “I was involved in a motor vehicle accident and as a result was prescribed Vioxx and late Celebrex after Vioxx was recalled. I have other related complications with my health as well such as Hepatitus C and Hemacromotosis. Last December I suffered a GI bleed and as a result needed to be hospitalized and nearly died. I was prescribed Celebrex and told by my physician that I could take one Aleve with Celebrex for pain relief for my arthritis prior to the hospitalization. Since being prescribed Celebrex I have also needed high blood pressure medication over the course of four year as a result of Celebrex being the main drug that was prescribed to me for pain. I have been experiencing high blood pressure for several years now and believe that Celebrex is the cause. I want join the class action lawsuit against Pfizer.”
If you were prescribed Celebrex after it got a black box warning, then you may not have a strong case, because the company already changed the severity of the warning. Obviously, it is a very complicated legal situation and I am not an attorney myself. Secondly, I am not at all familiar with the law in Canada; my opinion is primarily about the situation in America. Why don’t you try to reach out to a personal injury lawyer in your area and see what you can do? Rather than going the class action lawsuit round, you might be better off filing a personal injury claim.
